embers and ashes
vivid and warm
burn the hand that attempts to hold them.

ashes and embers
starving, fade away
flames too hot to remember.

ashes and ashes
cold and tired
no spark of recollection in them.

ashes and change
dust away, deep below
one flicker remains.

ashes and scars
time and friction

handful of caution,
there is light.
